The Macdonald-Cartier Bridge is set for a $5 million upgrade, which will see its deck, sidewalks, lighting, barriers and concrete surfaces rehabilitated in addition to a seismic retrofit.

A tender posted by Public Works earlier this month is set to close Feb. 12. 

The bridge connects King Edward Avenue in Ottawa to Highway 5 in Gatineau.

The tender says the work should be complete within two years of the contract being awarded.
